The Maat Tarot, by my friend Julie Cuccia-Watts, has been a huge hit with my clients this week. Almost everyone who has come to me for tarot consultations since last Monday has chosen the Maat deck to use for their sessions. There’s something about the artwork that just grabs people’s attention and speaks loudly during their appointments. Some of the images are so “real life” that they’re captivating. Others are deeply mythic, so they speak to that eternal part of us. Something I’ve noticed is that the Maat Tarot brings up a lot of ancestral issues — energies and situations that people are carrying on behalf of those who have gone before them. It’s almost shamanic. And the deck’s concepts and illustrations always offer very healing suggestions for how to shed those ancestral burdens. Hats off to Julie for such a work of beauty and healing!
